Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. In a small sauce pan add all the ingredients except the fish and the garnishes.
  3. Cook over low-medium heat for 10 minutes until fragrant and resembles a glaze.
  4. Place the salmon on an oiled foil pan or foiled sheet pan.
  5. Pour the glaze over the fish making sure to spread the glaze evenly and covering all the nooks and crannies. Make sure to cover both sides of the fish.*
  6. Place into the oven COVERED for 25 minutes.
  7. After 25 minutes, uncover the fish and allow to finish cooking and brown up. Do NOT THROW away the foil.
  8. Let stand for 5 minutes, tented with foil.
  9. Sprinkle with sea salt and lime zest if desired. Serve.

Recipe Notes

1. My salmon fillet was actually 3 separate pieces, in the event that you cannot get the large piece of salmon use this little trick. I just nestled them together so they make one large piece and the glaze acted like a glue.
2. You can actually let the salmon stand for about 15 minutes with the glaze on it so that it permeates the fish a bit better.
